Hey @elonmusk, is this normal?
New over-the-air paint touch up?
Yes captain, I can confirm we are just preparing to air drop your touch up paint pens.
Isn’t changing the colour of Air Force One costing taxpayers money? Why not just paint it once and leave it at that unless it needs touch up? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Interior and exterior detailing and touching up dings and paint chips will help the car look fresh. Fluid changes is also a way to leave a positive impression. Improve drivability with new spark plugs, clean the throttle body and mass airflow sensor, replace fuel filter, air filter, PCV valve, lube door hinges, change wiper blades and any other simple low cost item. The next gradation, if the car's price warrants, is to replace more expensive items if required - brake pads, battery, tires.
I cleaned and prepped a 3 bedroom 2 bath rental home that was the home of five people -all of whom “ vaped”. They lived in the home for 3 years. During the time they lived there I completed 4 service calls. The odor of the vaping fluids was very strong when I went for evening service calls and everyone was home. Other times I made service calls around lunch and no one was home. They also used plug in air “ fresheners” which emit an extremely strong odor. I could not smell anything but a sickly strong “ French vanilla” odor emitting from these air fresheners when no one was home. The house was around 1,000 square feet but they had enough “ air fresheners” to serve 5,000 square feet. After they moved out, I was curious to see what effect all that vaping had on the house. Here is what I found. The whole house, walls, ceilings, ceiling fans had more dust and particulate matter clinging to the surfaces. It appeared they dusted, but whatever they dusted with swept dust of a layer of matter clinging to these surfaces. I could not wipe away the dust. None of the surfaces seemed to be sticky, it was like something sticky was there and then dried. The low ceilings in the bedrooms and bathrooms were dirty but the high ceiling in the main room was not. I found that a car wash sponge with only warm water cleaned these surfaces in one pass, with frequent changes of rinse water. The amount of debris in the rinse water was pretty high. I did not detect any smell after I removed all the “ air fresheners” and opened all the windows and doors for a few hours. After washing the walls, ceilings and ceiling fans the house looked freshly painted. I touched up a few places scuffed during moving and I was done. This was a pleasant surprise for me. I have cleaned up units after they were occupied by 5 smokers and I had to wash, prime, paint, change carpet and pad, etc. None of that was nrcessacary after the vape crowd moved. I checked the forced air furnace filter, it was changed regularly and the one in the furnace was clean. I did have to wash the return grill and a few supply grills, but that was more normal, we do that in all move outs, so no noticeable difference there. Based on this one rather intense experience, I don’t see any significant or costly pitfalls with allowing vaping indoors on single family detached rentals. I am not addressing “ Dabbing” . I do not believe these residents were creating a high potency THC substance by reducing marijuana in solvents like butane and then vaping the concentrated residue. I found no evidence to indicate they engaged in this risky practice. I do believe they smoked pot. The ordinary odor of pot was detected occasionally outside during evening service calls but owing to the overwhelming vaping odors and “ odor control devices” I couldn’t disquinsh a strong pot odor indoors. I could speculate that they vaped the proceeds of reducing THC to a more concentrated state that they obtained from others but it would only be speculation.
There are actually some well-known ways, and some may seem pretty obvious… Wash your car every week. Avoid harsh machine car washes. Wax your car twice a year. Make sure the engine compartment & undercarriage get washed at least once or twice a year as well. Park your car in a garage, if at all possible. Perform scheduled maintenance, as indicated in your owner’s manual. Avoid driving your car aggressively. No jack rabbit starts or lots of hard braking and cornering maneuvers. Check fluids and tire pressure at least once a week. Establish a good working relationship with a decent local mechanic and allow them to service the car on a regular basis. If you notice any problems at all, no matter how minor, address them immediately. Even if it needs touch up paint or a light bulb replaced. Avoid most aftermarket modifications. this includes things such as headers, aftermarket air intake systems or re-maps.
It feels like fixing your own air conditioner. The house is your problem. A closet starts filling up with touch up paint and silicone caulk and teflon tape. Part of every pay increase gets added to your mortgage payment. Money spent now is money saved later. You have a stake in the health of your neighborhood. Every house that gets fixed up looks promising. You worry about the riff raff at the neighborhood park. You can paint the rooms however you like. You try weird things. You undo weird things. You watch your trees grow and worry about their wellbeing.
WW2 German tanks were originally painted dark grey as that was the standard colour used for artillery and other heavy equipment. It was realised early on that it was not an ideal colour for use in open country, especially especially in spring and summer, but since the Germans were winning and had air superiority, it did not really matter. It was not until they deployed to North Africa that the colour of German tanks was seen as a major problem. Obviously, a dark grey tank was too conspicuous for use on the dry earth and sand, so the Afrika Korps decided to paint their tanks a sandy tan colour. It proved to be difficult to cover the grey, especially as the paint often had to be diluted with petrol, so there was enough to cover all the vehicle. In the sandy, gritty environment the base colour soon showed through on edges and other exposed areas, and the camouflage paint had to be touched up frequently. Worse a sandstorm could reduce a tank to its base colour, or even bare metal, in minutes. Similar problems were encountered on the Eastern Front, where tanks had had to painted white for winter and often only whitewash was available. The Afrika Korps requested that it’s new vehicles be painted before delivery. Some of the vehicles intended for Africa had to be diverted to the Eastern Front. Users there reported that not only was the sandy tan much less conspicuous than dark grey, but it made a better base for applying camouflage paint; easier to cover and less conspicuous if the camouflage faded or wore through. From late 1942, it was decided that tanks and heavy equipment, and many smaller items such binoculars, should be factory finished in a slightly darker tan colour with appropriate camouflage paint applied by the troops in the field or at local depots. The basic olive drab used on American tanks proved to have similar qualities to the tan the Germans later adopted. It worked reasonably well in most environments and provided a good base on which to apply camouflage colours, if they were needed. The fact that the Germans camouflaged their tanks more often, in the second half of the War, than the Allies did reflected the switch in air superiority. The Germans were more likely to be spotted on reconnaissance photos and attacked by ,jabos, ,than the Allies were.
In the old school days of the 1980s, the entire tank battalion painted the tanks at the same time. After a good washing and all the miscellaneous gear removed, the crew masked off areas that were not to be painted using regular masking tape and newspaper. The entire tank was painted forest green using an air compressor hooked to a spray paint gun. The crews then used poor quality photocopies of the camouflage scheme and chalked off the pattern the next day. Then the black and brown parts were painted with the spray gun and some crews grabbed paint brushes like one would use to paint a house so they would get it done before dark. Crews couldn't leave until the tank was done or we ran out of paint. Neatness depended on the crewmen painting. There were often soldiers being punished for misconduct and they would finish up any tank that wasn't completed after duty hours. The next day the crew applied markings with stencils and any tank names that were chosen. Touch ups were done if needed. Unlike the factory painted schemes, no two tanks looked exactly alike.
The big cost of painting your aircraft with a beach scene (as shown in the question) is not the initial paint job; it's everything else... Colors on aircraft fade quickly... The aircraft fly at high altitudes and get bombarded with UV light that makes colors look faded. However, plain white paint doesn't "look faded." So the parts of an aircraft with colored paint need to be repainted more frequently. In this case, the whole plane would need to be repainted frequently. Paint chips.... The skin of the aircraft expands and contracts during a flight. This causes the paint to crack and chip off. It doesn't show much with white paint because the aircraft is white. However, it shows a lot when the aircraft is painted a non-white color. This means getting more touch ups to fix the obvious chips. You get less money when you sell... Like someone buying a house knowing they'll have to renovate, buyers pay less for painted aircraft because they know they'll have to re-paint the whole thing (because most airlines fly planes that are mostly white). The Highest Cost of All: Opportunity Cost.... There's a reason they don't close a factory to paint it; lots of potential revenue is lost. With an airline, the planes are the factory, and the planes are only making money when they're in the air. Every time you stop flying a plane to paint (or re-paint) it the airline is losing far more money than the cost of the paint job; they're losing the money they would have made by selling tickets if the plane was still flying.
When my daughter was in art school, I’d drive the hour it took to visit her about once each month. Sometimes, we’d cross the street to the building that housed all the studios. Everything she needed was in the studio assigned to her, so the only thing she took was her dog, Mina. I sat in a chair while Mina and I watched her work. It was soothing. There was a dreamlike quality to listening to the charcoal strokes or paint strokes. She’d draw/paint then step back, tilt her head and observe what she’d done. Art school is very different from other colleges. There’s an electric charge of creativity in the air that is palpable. Sometimes she’d touch up a piece she’d drawn while copying one of the masters at a gallery. Below is one of them. But, in college, she drew primarily abstract. After she was finished in the studio, the three of us headed to her apartment and settled in for a mother/daughter chat. That was magical, too. Mina laid down at my daughter’s feet. Her gentle, German shepherd eyes followed us back and forth as one of us spoke and the other answered. It was endearing. When it was time to leave, both of them followed me to the car where I’d kiss my daughter and Mina good-bye until next month. I’d love to repeat those beautiful times we had. We’ve had hundreds of other beautiful times together, but I do remember those visits to her studio with such fondness.
Haha Really!? ,I am glad to know. Lot of effort goes in to looking good. Trust me when I say this. Imagine one has to wake up at 3am , wear makeup and leave for work and keep smiling no matter what. And imagine if one had to do this everyday of their lives. This image above, ,NOT ALLOWED! The nail paint has to be clean all the time through out the flight. something like this If something is not on point one gets to hear from there leads ( seniors/ managers) Same applies to hairstyle, lipstick, neatness of uniform. For passengers, air hostesses define an airline. They're the ambassador's. So a lot of training goes to make sure the flight attendants look great all the time. Obviously constant touch ups is a must! All this being said, lastly ,Beauty lies in the beholders eyes
Every time the SR71 returned from a mission they had to repaint the aircraft. No matter the paint it just baked off because of the heat. The windshields were made of oven grade quartz because their temperature, in flight, exceeded 600 degrees F. It has been reported that some parts of the aircraft would begin to glow from the heat. Like wingtips. Exceeding 1100 deg. Not a problem for a Titanium aircraft. The aircraft was designed to “grow” more than 6 inches in length because of the heat. Fuel touched up inside just about every nook and cranny because every ounce of fuel was needed. For those and other reasons bladders were never tried.
